The CAS Humanities Collaborative will be highlighting the scholarship of three humanities professors in its first event of the academic year on Thursday, October 4, at 4 p.m., in the Bauccio Commons board room. Simon Aihiokhai, theology; Tina Astorga, theology; and Josh Swidzinski, English, will be presenting on research projects they conducted over the past summer. Participants will also get a first glimpse at the Humanities Collaborative manifesto, created with input from faculty during Faculty Development Day in May. Refreshments will be served courtesy of College of Arts and Sciences dean Herbert Medina. All members of the UP community are welcome and encouraged to attend.
The CAS Humanities Collaborative is dedicated to joining forces with our colleagues in the humanities to promote the enduring relevance of the humanities as a vital part of guiding students in their development as empowered, engaged critical thinkers and participants in a world of unscripted problems. We promote collaboration as a means of providing a strong base for strategic planning and to seek out opportunities to publicize and support the professional development of our colleagues teaching and researching in the humanities.
